“Very good!”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

After travel 8 hrs from Quito this hotel was a piece of heaven for us! in our way the bus driver told us we can find a hotel very close to the bus station (one block) and we took his advice... the hotel is under going renovation, they have a/c, a little fridge in the room, hot water, very good restaurant... maybe a little noise (earplugs is the easy solution). they have tv too but we didn't use because they just have programs in spanish
Celia the young lady in the front desk have a great personality and is very helpful!

A quick $4 taxi ride, and we arrive at the Hotel Lun Fun, conveniently located next to a bus station: always a sign of a good neighbourhood. The hotel is very clean, but the furnishings are outdated and worn. Even a low rent motel in North America would be embarrased.

The hotel restaurant feeds us a snack of reasonably-priced Chinese food, which even tastes like it might have been inspired by Chinese food.The bed is like a rock, and there is a lot of traffic noise, yelling, and horns honking throughout the night. Oh well, at least we got a hotel, although I think the “Hotel Lun Fun” needs a more honest name.

Celia H, Operation Manager at Hotel Lun Fun Manta, responded to this review, 3 August 2013
Dear guest,
We really appreciate your review, your comments are really important for us.
The hotel is very happy to inform our guests that we already started the update of the rooms and other public areas to improve the service and infrastructure, and we expect to be completed in January next year.
About the name of the hotel (LUN FUN) the meaning is "Lucky Dragon", the family that owns the hotel are first generation of Chinese - Ecuadorian in Manta, Ecuador. That is why the business has this name.
Sincerely,
Hotel LUN FUN Manta

We have traveled to several countries, and were impressed with the Lun Fun. We just left the end of July 2013 so this is a recent review, and some recent improvements had taken place. First let me say it is not on the beach, but we did not miss that. It is close to the farmers market, and shopping. The staff were fantastic. Cecelia ( the manager)was outstanding, and spoke English excellent. She graduated from Boston. She is there to make sure your stay is perfect, and is a problem solver. There is 24 security, and they are extremely courteous. We felt very safe at the Lun Fun. We were is walking distance of the shops and farmers market. Outstanding photo opportunities. We will stay there whenever we return to Manta.

As someone said before, perhaps we stayed in bad rooms.... They were old, dark and noisy. Even though the entire hotel look much better from the outside, the inside was not the same. We stayed there for a travel business. Service was average, not bad but not the best.

This is a pet-friendly facility. The staff is helpful, and the rooms are clean. Breakfast is adequate. It will be even better when renovations are complete.
Location is not great.
They have an unusual WiFi system, whereby only one computer/laptop per room can be signed on at any given time. Since business was slow while we were there, the manager was nice and gave us a password for a vacant room.

I was somewhat skeptical of this hotel based on some negative reviews but we were coming over Carnival and this was the only hotel that gave us a booking. The hotel is older and is going through some updating. The lobby, lounge and dining areas are complete and very well done. The rooms are clean and adequate with A/C and decent washrooms & showers with lots of hot water. The hallways do not seem to be air conditioned so a little close when you leave the room. The included breakfasts are great and we had dinner here for 5 nights. The dinners were excellent. The hotel is a family owned hotel and we had the pleasure of being looked after by the manager Celia. We have stayed in many hotels over many years, but this woman was the most accommodating hotelier we have encountered. Her attention to customer care has been stamped onto her staff as they too are most helpful. We would defiinately recommend this hotel as great value for the money.

Room Tip: They have some rooms with Queen beds.
